The NOVITEC ROSSO Sport Program for the Ferrari SA APERTASupercharged Engine wîth 888 hp and Superlight Forged Wheels
The Ferrari SA APERTA is one of the most exclusive Ferrari models of all times. Only 80 of them were built in a one-time limited-edition production run. NOVITEC ROSSO, worldwide market leader in tuning for the sports cars from Maranello, now makes the drop-top version of the 599 even more powerful and fascinating. A twin-supercharger conversion bumps power output of the V12 from standard 670 to 888 hp and boosts peak torque to 636 lb/ft, giving the two-seater a top speed of more than 211 mph. The NOVITEC ROSSO options for the limited-edition special model also include extremely lightweight NOVITEC ROSSO forged wheels in a staggered combination wîth diameters of 21 and 22 inches, sport springs and a stainless-steel high-performance exhaust system wîth butterfly valve.
At the heart of the NOVITEC ROSSO program for the SA APERTA is the bi-compressor engine in high-end specification. Two mechanical high-performance superchargers, lubricated by a dedicated oil circuit, are adapted to the six-liter, four-valve V12 engine and driven by an elaborate cogged-belt system. The conversion also includes a large water-to-air intercooler wîth dedicated water circuit.
The intake side of the engine is reconfigured wîth a custom-developed intake manifold, high-performance injectors and sport air filters whose air supply is optimized by special air routing.
On the outlet side there are exhaust manifolds calibrated specifically to the bi-compressor engine and the NOVITEC ROSSO stainless-steel exhaust system wîth four black-coated tailpipes wîth a diameter of 90 millimeters each. The electronically controlled butterfly valve in the exhaust allows changing the exhaust note at the push of the ‘Manettino' button on the §teering wheel.
|Engine : 6.0 L., 12-cylinder|
Power: 888 hp
Torque: 636 ft-lbs
The power increase by 218 hp to 888 hp at 8,400 rpm means the two-seater now offers power that is as superlative as its new peak torque of 636 lb/ft at 6,600 rpm, a gain of 178 lb/ft over its production brethren.
Together wîth the F1 Superfast six-speed transmission the NOVITEC ROSSO bi-compressor version delivers exceptional performance. From rest the car sprints to 62 mph in just 3.1 seconds. After 9.1 seconds it reaches a speed of 124 mph; the 186 mph barrier shatters after 21.9 seconds. Top speed is in excess of 211 mph.
The body of the Ferrari SA APERTA is refined by NOVITEC ROSSO in a few details. Supplemental GTO-style front spoiler lip, side skirts and rear fascia that match the look of the front fascia of the special model are installed on the car. All clear-coated carbon-fiber components come wîth a matte finish for a true racing look. Further understated highlights are added by the NOVITEC ROSSO black lamps that are available for all 599 models. The set includes tail lamps, third brake light, rear fog lamp and side markers.
More conspicuous are the NOVITEC ROSSO forged wheels, which were custom-developed for the Ferrari 599. In a staggered combination of 21-inch wheels in front and 22-inch wheels on the rear axle they put even more emphasis on the wedge-shaped appearance of the super sports car. The most impressive feature of these wheels wîth five delicate double spokes and sunken valve is their low weight.
With a weight of just 22.9 lbs the NOVITEC ROSSO NF4 10Jx21 alloy wheel for the front axle is one of the lightest wheels of its size in the world. The same is true for the size 12Jx22 rear wheel that weighs in at just 30.4 lbs. The reduction in unsprung weight has positive effects on handling as do the markedly wider tires. Pirelli PZero tires are mounted by NOVITEC ROSSO in size 295/25 ZR 21 on the front axle and in size 335/25 ZR 22 in back.
Also custom-developed for the drop-top special model were the NOVITEC ROSSO sport springs. They are calibrated to work wîth the stock shocks and lower the ride height of the SA APERTA by some 25 millimeters. The suspension can be optionally fitted wîth a front axle lift system. The vehicle front is raised by 40 millimeters at the push of a button in the cockpit for safely navigating past obstacles such as underground parking ramps or speed bumps without beaching the front spoiler. Úpon reaching a speed of 50 mph or at the second push of the button the suspension reverts to its original position.
NOVITEC ROSSO also offers exclusive interior appointments in any desired color or upholstery design for the drop-top Ferrari.Source - Novitec
